this sort thing always reminds me, in a time when we should be having overall a longish longevity, average lifespan ages, ppl living, well some at least, to eighty... think of just how many? how many out there across your country and mine, alive today saw, can tell us, saw this or that major world event time? like how many can tell us I Saw the effects of the big 1929 crash right there in 1930? old enough to see, to hear, to get it, like at least fourteen years old in 1930? guess we lost those who could say I Saw, I Was there, in the November armistice of 1918; to be fourteen then they have to be what today? ..... can your da or ma say I Saw about something like perhaps the New Year day of 1940 with Europe at war and Asia in flames and the world heading toward a handbasket when many plain folk still had not yet climbed out from the Depression? your da or ma alive today, can say I Was there? ...... when will we lose all those who can say I Saw the VE day, May 1945, or VJ day that year? ...... when will we have only 50 alive in the world Korea conflict veterans, soon I bet? .... "I was shocked hearing on the radio that Gen MacArthur was recalled! by Truman" people. The clocks keep turning, even though less of us to hear the ticking.
"(Do you read what they say online?) I check out all these scandalous rumours about me and Elijah Wood having beautiful sex with each other ... (are they true?) About Elijah and me being boyfriend and boyfriend? Absolutely true. We've been together for about nine years. I wooed him. No I just like a lot of stuff - I like that someone says one thing and it becomes fact. It's kind of fun." --Dominic Monaghan in a phone interview with Newsweek while buying DVDs at the store. :D
